still are very scared of what happened in 1994. the narrative that emerged from that election was a vote for the assault weapons ban contributed to the democrats losing their majority in the house and people in the senate and in the congress don't want to relive that, for better or worse. >> people like tom foley out in spokane. you're right. speaker of the house lost in that race. >> democratic senators from red states where mitt romney ran are vulnerable. here we have mark pryor of arkansas, begih of alaska, mary landrieu and a lot of these people who are passionate on gun rights will remember every election from now on and vote accordingly against these people. >> well, chris, it's true that i would suggest to senators that there's some things worse than not being re-elected. but i also think they give the gun lobby way too much credit. let's take harry reid, who has coward before the gun lobby if harry reid thinks it's gun lobbyists who got him back in the election, he's nuts. he lost the male vote. it was the obama coalition of union voters, young voters who put harry reid back in o

wedding rings and all other parts of straight life. the karl rove winning elections and the abolitionists wing are in for a prolonged situation. 2014 will be tough, but once these two gangs, the palin and rove crowds, have to meet again in 2016, it's not going to be pretty and sure as hell isn't going to be a marriage and that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. "the ed show" starts right now. >>> good evening, americans, welcome to "the ed show." i'm michael eric dyson. elizabeth warren takes a stand for working class americans. michele bachmann has seen the light on infrastructure and might be getting off the appalachain trail and heading back to washington and a southern pastor makes a radical stand for justice. but tonight, we start with the tenth anniversary of the ed show. let's get to work. the shock and awe campaign was launched against -- a decade later, the forces behind with trying to revise that history. today, donald rumsfeld tweeted ten years ago, the long, difficult work of liberating 25 million iraqis deserve our respect and appreciation. put aside for the mome
newspaper this morning -- a story by gina smith for the island. turnout will decide today's election for the first congressional seat in south carolina. gina smith is joining us on the phone this morning. gina smith, tell me about this race. who is running and why? guest: good morning. this is like christmas morning for me. i'm so excited. this is really an exciting race, because 18 republicans, two democrats, an incredibly crowded field but some of the names in this race just make it delicious to watch. we have mark sham ford, the former governor who most of the nation remembers as the guy who slipped out of the country in 2009 so he could visit his mistress, and he -- everyone thought he was hiking the appalachian trail but he was up with a female. so governor sanford is back on his redemption tour, we also family member 's and steven colbert, the comedian, his sister. and a lot of mudslinging which outh carolina is infamous for. host: so sanford is is leading for the primary? guest: yes. it was a comeback story that you thought if it happened it would be five or eight years from n
to the specifics. watch for the senators from red states up for re-election and the pressure is greatest on them. they are away two weeks now from washington, back home, and there will be pressure on them. they will hear from their constituents about what to do from this. if you don't have much support, if any, among republicans, you need those democrats to get it through. >> hey, mark, give me a sense of harry reid's role in this. he wants to keep that title senate majority leader. navigating through these ice floes of this. >> it's already on the side of those who would like to see a large package, including a pretty big risk background check provision. it's not clear to me what more opponents can be to put pressure on senator reid. senator reid has a long history with the nra. they did not support him in his re-election race and i think he is looking for a path that not only protects his own views on gun control and not only tries to accommodate the white house but try to protect the majority. i think he is very stensive not just on guns but a range of issues too. all of these democrats are u
was going through your mind? >> you know, for me, i'm elected to congress and i take every vote seriously, but the vote to invade a sovereign nation, put our fighting americans at risk and go into this country, it has to be taken very seriously. and i've had several of these votes, of course. but what i look at is this country a threat to our national security. we had the classified briefings. with don rumsfeld and cheney and the whole group. they kept saying we have the weapons of mass destruction. there was a pesky little group of us and we kept saying show us the evidence. show us the evidence. they say, don't worry, we have the evidence. i'm not going to vote to send our fighting men and women into another country and waste all those lives and billions of dollars. just based on frankly on dick cheney's assurance, so i voted no. people did not believe that the white house would lie to them, and so they believed that iraq had these weapons, but they didn't and there was never proof they did. >> was it the fact there was no proof that led to your vote? were you objecting to the rush to j
trying to figure out why they lost so big on election night. they lost african-americans, asian americans, latinos, young people and women. those are big problems but republicans are ignoring the real solutions. look, i think you're going to continue to have a problem. >> the problem is with their policies. there is no nice way to tell seniors you're changing social security. to tell latinos we're profiling you, we're suppressing your vote. we don't need a smile. we need new policies. thank you for watching. i'm al sharpton. "hardball" starts right now. >>> religious war. let's play "hardball." good evening. i'm chris matthews in washington. i'm not washington. let me start tonight with this. you can't steer a car with the engine off. it's problem with the republican party today. get rid of the cultural right, abortion and gay marriage, all those began who moving to the republican party over prayer in public school years ago and you kill one giant engine. get rid of the whackos as john mccain cats them and you lose another engine. all the libertarians who just want government out of their
. coming up next, michael steele former chairman of the rnc party. he will weigh in on the 2012 election and ralph nader, a consumer, advocate, and past president of canada will look at the disparity between ceo pay and minimum-wage. we will be right back. >> going straight to a personal poppet. 11 on the commission since 2006. the chairman has been on since late 2009. his term is up. yours will be of next year. should we expect to see turnover at the commission? >> we do not have staggered terms. the past six years has flown by very quickly. and we shall see. i get asked this question every couple of years. we of been there almost seven years. inflection points like this. we shall see. shall see what? >> about what to do next. i did not think we should stay in these positions for ever, but at the same time, i love my job. that is part of what is keeping me here. we of a lot of a born work to do. of important work to do. we spoke with the commissioners before his announcement. hear more tonight on "the communicators." tonight on first ladies, called a bigamist and adults were during her
a contested election, the adams' four years in the white house were a turbulent period in american politics and washington society. we'll look at louisa adams' relationship with her husband john quincy adams and john and abigail on the road to 1600 pennsylvania avenue. good evening and welcome to our continuing series on first ladies influence and image in partnership with the white house historical association. the next installment is on louisa catherine adams, the wife of john quincy adams. we have two guests at the able, richard norton smith and meet amanda matthews. she is at the massachusetts historical society where she is a research associate for the adams papers. ms. matthews, we learned there was not much documentary evidence about elizabeth monroe. how about louisa catherine adams, what exists? >> quite a wealth. she kept diaries intermittently. she wrote autobiographies and memoirs. there are hundreds and hundreds of letters of hers. we have her thoughts and feelings from her point of view, both reflective and contemporary as the events were taking place. >> another suggested tha
, the economy is waiting to be unlocked. enthey went on to say that's why we desperately need to you elect at least 17 democrats. 17 democrats in the house would give them the majority come 2014. >> yeah. look, it is a very, very ambitious goal. i believe the last time that the president has won that number of house seats in a six-year election, a mid, six year midterm was 1822. he has got his work cut out for him. i would suggest joe biden remember, house republicans were elected to do a job too. and they're doing, for their constituents exactly what they said they would do in the last election. so it is not as if republicans would bend to the president's will simply because he won an election. bill: that point is that the focus is on the debt. which one might argue would not be there unless you had house republicans pushing for that or at least holding the line. one final point, you say biden has given the game up here. what does that mean? >> yeah, look, i just think if there were a real charm offensive, if they actually wanted to find a deal, what would you not see is the vice presiden
to acknowledge it or not, we have divided government. the american people elected a republican majority in the house, and our job is to make the case for our policies, find common ground where it exists and see if we can make this divided government work, and that is what we intend to do. we owe the american people a responsible balanced budget. that's what we are delivering today, and i urge support of this resolution. the chair: the time of the gentleman has expired. all time for debate has expired. under the rule the committee rises. the speaker pro tempore: mr. chairman. the chair: mr. speaker, the committee of the whole house on the state of the union having had under consideration house concurrent resolution 25 and pursuant to house resolution 1 2 i report the -- 1 2 i report the con-- 122 i report the concurrent resolution back to the house. the speaker pro tempore: the chairman of the committee of the whole house on the state of the union reports that it has had under consideration house resolution 25 and pursuant to house resolution 122 reports the concurrent resolution back t
election. stricter photo id laws in pennsylvania and shortening the early -- taking away the early voting in sunday in florida. my colleague took him to task on that. let's listen to michael. >> how does priebus reconcile his approach and agreement with voter registration policies that many in the black community view as anti-black, racist. you can show up any time. it's what you say and what you do when you get there that matters most to people. >> priebus was asked about steel's criticism right there this morning by luke russert. he dodged the question. i think you will see the dodge. let's watch. >> what's your response to him? >> well, i'm not going to -- i'm not going to engage in an argument with michael. but, you know, the fact of the matter is you have to have the resources to be able to have an effective ground operation in minority communities. if you don't market and brand your party on a regular basis i think that you're going to continue to have problems. that's a big piece of what we're trying to do here. >> you know, it was well advertised by the republican party, not by yo
, it will be increasingly difficult for republicans to win another presidential election in the near future. host: you heard chairman reince priebus talking about that $10 million inclusion effort, one of the many recommendations that he's set to give at the national press club this morning. you can actually watch that on one of our sister networks at 8:30. here's the headline from the "usa today" on that effort. republicans to spend $10 illion on inclusion -- host: we'll be talking about that in the first 45 minutes of the "washington journal" today. we're taking calls from just republicans. up first is bob from philadelphia, pennsylvania. bob, thanks for calling in this morning. caller: good morning. how are you, sir? host: good. your thoughts on this new effort? caller: i think that they are still missing a little bit of the point here. i think the biggest problem is uninformed voters. all they hear all day long is just background noise from mainstream media. i was a staunch liberal democrat. i truly was, until i started doing my own research and finding my own facts. even my mom and dad were staunch lib
is the surest way to lose the next election, that is one of the conclusions? >> right. it says that you can't act hostile to immigrants or hispanic americans or have hostile rhetoric and expect them to vote for you. it may not be the number one issue for immigrant americans or hispanic americans but it is one of those issues where you have to sound like you're welcoming before they can look at other issues. so that was one of the areas where they recommended. and frankly, a lot of republicans are already on board with this, leading the way is marco rubio obviously and the gang of eight which is pushing for comprehensive immigration reform. jon: we've seen president obama going in for soft media interviews, "people" magazine, "the view", "the daily show" with jon stewart. republicans have to do the same thing according to this report. >> sounds a little bit frivolous but maybe it is but one of the suggestions in the report that republicans do more apearns poos on colbert report and daily show and do interviews with "us weekly." they have very serious proposals in the report. some things whic
behalf and political benefit in the case of the united states to help them win election. he was saying your political leaders respects going to take the risks unless you push them and force them to take risks. it was an interesting play. particularly coming as it did after what he said in the press conference. >> bret: i would attribute that to rhetoric. look, obama understands that with what is happening around israel, egypt in hands of the brotherhood, rockets landing today from gaza, chemical weapons probably loose in syria. hezbollah on the northern border. and iran today announcing it would destroy tel aviv if there is an israeli attack. in that kind of uncertainty and hostility, no way they could be asks to take risks today. number one priority is iran, number two is syria. >> bret: last thing on iran. he reiterated iran must not get a nuclear weapon. and cannot be contained. peres said america is looking for peace but if somebody threatens peace america is not a chicken. >> this whole conversation, i don't see thissed are call shift that you are portraying. israel go beyond the
, mahmoud abbas and king abdullah of jordan. >>> so you thought the election season was over. huh-uh. it is primary day in south carolina, folks. i'm talking low country. you see it right there. this state's first congressional district anchored by charleston and what a cast of characters this little race for congress. you have a man known as the former governor of the appalachiap ppa lash shap trail. the son of a certain media mogul, and you've also got the sister of a very famous funny man. and don't to get this, we're talking about south carolina. home of kamikaze style politics. this is an old fashioned street fight why a state where they all intersect. john avalon, piece choinice cho words. good to see you, sir. you had a trip to charleston. we of course begin with mark sanford, the guy who famously told reporters he was, you know, hiking on the aptrail but was actually having a bit of a tryst in arrest again see in a. is it true that he asked the woman who divorced him, jenny sanford, to run his campaign for this congressional seat? >> so that has indeed been reported. awkwa
. >> if these experts who keep losing elections, you keep getting rehired raking in millions, if they feel that strongly about who gets to run in this party, then they should buck up or stay in the truck. buck up and run. the architects can head on back to -- they can head on back to the great lone star state and put their name on some ballot. >> oh, that did not go over too well with karl rove, the man known as the architect of george w. bush's presidential campaigns. >> i appreciate her encouragement that i ought to go home to texas. i'd be ennewsed if i ran for office to have her support. but i don't think i'm particularly good candidate, sort of a balding fat guy. and second of all, i'd say if i did run for office and win, i'd serve out my term. i wouldn't leave office midterm. >> ouch. our question, in a i'm threat cal match-up, who wins over the republican faithful, karl rove or sarah palin? >> sarah palin. simply because she's just more likeable. you may think she's an idiot, you may think she has no idea what she's talking about, but there is something about her charisma that attracts a large nu
different direction than the national democrats want to and winning elections with that approach. so there's a lot to be learned both by the failure of the romney campaign and the senate races and the successes the republicans have had at the state level. >> host: and we're taking your calls in this segment with grover norquist with americans for tax reform. the phone lines are open. democrats, 202-585-3880. republicans, 202-585-3881. independents, 202-585-3882. grover norquist known as an expert on some of these budget issues. you bring up the senate budget that we saw from budget chairwoman patty murray last week with. talk about that and how you think it compares to paul ryan's budget. >> guest: there are two major differences. they certainly go in different directions. the paul ryan budget balances in ten years and does not raise taxes. patty murray's budget never balances and raises taxes $1.5 trillion over the next decade. so what the democrats and patty murray are saying in addition to the $600 billion tax increase that obama won in january and the trillion dollars of obamacare tax
of all during the election year that tape of mitt romney talking to rich people in florida about the people, the 47%, who aren't rich? priebus talks about outreach to the young, yet it was his party that opposed issues important to younger voters. marriage equality, abortion rights, gun safety. and he's still talking, actually pushing big tax cuts for the rich and cuts in medicare and medicaid that affect the middle class and poor. what a strange thing it is to hear reince priebus talking about building bridges when he was the one with his hands on the detonator? former pennsylvania governor ed rendell is with us as well as managing editor of the grio joy reid. i'm just wondering, why would a political party believe a new fr strategy would cover up for its policies? >> it makes no sense at all. first of all, their policies are bankrupt. they're the exact same, and they haven't changed their policies a bit, chris. you see republican state legislators pushing antiabortion bills that are clearly unconstitutional, clearly punitive to women. no exceptions for incept and rape. things t
that's going to change her election. she's worried about louisiana. she's worried about getting re-elected in that state. and until you see the zeitgeist change within the state, these politicians are not responsive to that. where bloomberg can make a huge difference is he can go into a local race, a congressional district, he can go in on a state. when mary landrieu starts seeing bloomberg money against her, then i think she might change her mind. >> let's talk about bloomberg money. as if he's got bloomberg money. "the new york times" quotes thomas mann from brookings, said the $12 million in advertising was unlikely to influence the outcome of the legislation, unless lawmakers were convinced that mr. bloomberg would open his wallet again after the vote, both to reward those who supported the bill and to punish those who did not. that's absolutely key, said mann. what do you make of that? >> i think that makes sense. in the immediate environment we're in today, one of these media campaigns can be a flash in the pan. but i think this is a long game and think it's a long game for good reas
single idea, every single individual from the most junior member just elected two months ago to the most senior member who has been here for 40 years, if you have a budget idea, you get to have it heard on the floor of the house. in this case, mr. speaker, that's going to be six buckets we are going to look at -- budgets we are going to look at tomorrow. six budgets. mr. speaker, i believe having an open process is important. we made in order the progressive caucus budget. that progressive caucus budget trillion.es by $5.7 unashamed, unabashed. tough economy, let's raise taxes by $5.7 trillion. and let's increase spending even more than we are today. i'm glad that that budget's going to be here on the floor. congressional black caucus raises taxes $4. trillion. mr. van hollen's substitute raises taxes $1.2 trillion. and you saw the chart the chairman of the rules committee had on the floor of the house here earlier. we don't have a tax problem, we have a spending problem in this country. if we took everything from everybody, we still wouldn't have enough money to pay for all the promises
card. call now! >>brian: we're learning about the first ever cyber attack in the u.s. election. it happened in florida last year. authorities say hackers tried to get absentee ballots in an attempt to sweep three primary elections. >>> tiger woods and lindsey vonn confirming their relationship. they say they were friends for some time but over the last few months they became very close and are now dating. that's not all. the two posted cutesy photos of them together on their facebook pages. as you can imagine, reaction is pouring in. mike on prompter can't believe it. others say don't have much faith in the tiger woods-lindsey vonn relationship, but at least she's used to things going downhill quickly. that's nice and optimistic. anna, build on that. >>anna: six minutes before the seven is the time. the unemployment rate for our veterans has gone down in the past months but still nearly two points higher than the national average. our next guest is trying to change that. kevin o'brien is managing partner of veteran recruiting service. good morning to you. >> thanks for having m
a baert that four months before aven election. that's how we coperated for yeas and years and we have done well compared to ourselves. in comparison to the other side the obama campaign lived in these communities for years. the row layinelationships were authentic. one of the major things you will see tomorrow come out is that for the first time in our party's history we are not talking about having a few people down the hallway working on outreach and inclusion we are going to be announcing a $10 million initiative just this year in which it will include hundreds of people paid across the country from coast to coast and hispanic, african american, asian community talking about our party. talking about our brand, talking about what we believe, going to community events going to swearing in ceremonies being in the community ongoing paid for by the republican national committee to make the case for our party and candidates. >> he said that he is also -- that he would also like to see a shorter primary process and convention. before you leave the house let's get an update from maria molina. w
the money that have raised for re-election. was a second allegation that he threw a party to celebrate an anniversary of his in terms of his service and the house that corresponded to the date of his daughter's graduation. funds for use of personal reasons? andrews has reimbursed his campaign committee and made the typical statement that he is cooperating completely and he said this would exonerate him. look at this would say if i can take money out of that account but i'm not supposed to use, making restitution shows some ways -- some remorse but if you stole $30,000 from your company's pension fund, chances are, you would be in trouble. took a couple of trips many years.k to he was there back in the days of armarking where he earmarked money for a road in florida. these are pet project to help out companies and sometimes nonprofits and schools and infrastructure in their own districts. it was a little odd to see an alaska congressman helping a florida district. there was a developer there he had a relationship with a one of that road. representative of young, the charges don't revolv
the leading role as a functioning democracy. due though that elections will be critical. if iraq remains conclusive and cohesive it has a chance of succeeding. heather? >> kelly wright thank you so much. >> the time now 11 after the top of the hour. after a week cbs finally addresses the controversy over this memorial being used as a prop during the show "the amazing race." was it enough? >> we report you decide. >> why people are flocking to this particular seminar. it is to learn how to grow pot. tell you where this one happened coming up next. >> as we get a break let's take a look at the gas prices. the national average is $3.67. that's the same as yesterday. be right back. look what mommy is having. mommy's having a french fry. yes she is, yes she is. [ bop ] [ male announcer ] could've had a v8. 100% vegetable juice, with three of your daily vegetable servings in every little bottle. >> 15 after the top you are hour. welcome back. a vile containing a deadly virus disappeared from texas. it caused deadly outbreaks in venezuela. it is being studied because it could be used as a weapo
worse than we were hearing here. two years later the republican party has the best off-year election and we march on to victory. >> because reality changes. a vietnam war going to bed and change people's minds. back in '89 republicans won five of the last six elections and electoral lock on the country. they have five six straight elections and south and west and democrats are done. then bill clinton shows up and, importantly, challenges his own party on stub substance, not process. he says we are brain dead. we have got to change on welfare and let people know we are tough on crime. he is a death penalty democrat. now people are saying the republican party is dead. >> but, charles, two years after bill clinton won said, we changed plolitic forever. my only point is i'm all for the hand wringing. nobody has been more critical of the republican party than myself, but sometimes it just comes down to blocking and tackling. getting the best quarterback and getting guys and women that know how to block and tackle. and this campaign was run horrifically the past year. >> if i can play devi
to stop that, the iraqi election to prime minister al-maliki recently and suddenly delayed for six months and secretary of state is to convince him and reverse course and not waiting for a vote. and a meeting got underway in the last half hour or so, at some points we expect to see kerry at a solo press conference in iraq and we hope to get an update then about how things have been going on this surprise trip. back to you in new york. >> alisyn: peter, thank you very much for the update. let's get to the rest of your headlines. another fox news for you right now. let's take a live look from vatican city. this is pope francis celebrating palm sunday mass in a packed st. peter's square and next to easter the most holy day in the catholic church. this is a day after pope francis met with pope emeritus benedict xvi, and the two spoke privately for about 45 minutes and then the two prayed side by side. a tragic skydiving accident in florida that left two people dead. an experienced instructor and student both from iceland and jumped with a group of about 22 people and something went wrong duri

internal autopsy of what went wrong in the 2012 election. it is a long list of mistakes, and includes potential ideas for reform. but as you just brought up, the party is trying to rehabilitate its image, solve an identity crisis, and it means feuds are breaking out all over, including one between karl rove and sarah palin. sarah palin stole the show at this weekend's cpac convention, playing more the role of entertainer and standup comedian than a serious politician. >> bloomberg is not around. >> her remarks included a direct shot at karl rove. >> the last thing we need is washington, d.c. vetting our candidates. it is these experts that keep losing elections, you keep getting rehired, raking in millions. architects can head on back -- they can head back to the lone star state and put their name on some ballots. >> he fired back reminding palin of her political primary. >> if she can plan primaries, other people can. >> if i did, i would serve my term, i wouldn't leave office mid term. >> jeb bush offered tough love to his party. >> all too often we are associated with being anti-ev
americans, citing this as a major reason why they lost last year's presidential election. as a result, they're now promising a kinder, gentler republican party. but sadly, the rhetoric just doesn't match the reality of a paul ryan budget which is nothing more than a rehash of the failed agenda that the american people have already rejected. the republican budget continues to push harsh and unnecessary budget cuts that eliminate the safety net for millions of middle class americans. the american people don't want a budget that break ours promises to seniors by turning medicare into a voucher program or cuts investments that support job creation just for the sake of more budget busting tax cuts for the wealthiest taxpayers and corporations. yet my friends on the other side my friends continue pushing this approach in the name of deficit reduction, but their own leadership admitted we don't have a debt crisis in the country. the architect, congressman paul ryan, said we don't have a debt crisis. speaker boehner said it's not an immediate problem. why should we enact this budget while democrats
to check the box that he finally made it to israel. it's significant it comes after the american election. he goes to israel on his terms while the visit will be heavy with symbolism and opportunities this is a rare trip in which the substance of the visit will be divorced from the symbolism. i don't think there will be any fence mending on this trip. president obama comes with two messages one make more concessions to the palestinians and two don't think about attacking iran's nuclear weapons program. if people could hear the conversation that president obama and prime minister netanyahu are about to have i think the 10 percent rating would be even lower. oo a oo this morning we are hearing the 911 call that may have stopped the massacre at the university. >> my roommate pulled the fire alarm and he has a gun out. he's there with some sort of large assault gun. >> that call was made by avakani. he was plotting to kill fellow students and pulled the alarm to lure them into the hallway. he opened his door and came face to face with the gun. >> just direct eye contact. he pointed it at me h
live in a country that has elected twice an african-american president, and so we don't think this is germane anymore. >> you health hit is right on the head and that's what justice o'connor said. >> the issue here is this law basically violated the equal protection clause bought it tried to usurp authority that the public universities had in creating policy. >> neil: which is part of the argument, also in white candidates were passed over because of this. so they were slighted and -- >> that was not in the decision in this case. the decision dealt with -- >> neil: what about that argument? >> that's not the argument the court, the sick independent circuit court of appeals looked a. >> when it came to the voting, there was argument that isn't it going to be affirmative action in reverse? now whites overlooked for the same education positions or slots in a class. >> again, that is debatable, the issue here is that the university of michigan, michigan state university, wayne state university, public institutions, that are regulated by state laws, look at the state of michigan, t
need the help of our elected officials to give us the certainty, flexibility, and time to make change. if we can get reforms to pay in compensation we need, and we need them, and if we can get rid of weapons and infrastructure we do not need, then we can begin to restore the versatility of sustainableorce at a costs. as i stand here today, i do not yet know whether or if for how much our defense strategy will change, but i predict it will. we will need to look at our assumptions and adjust our ambitions to match our ability, and that means doing less, but not doing less well. it also means relying more on our other instruments of power to help underwrite global security. we will not do this well if we do not back the development with sufficient dollars. and our partners will have to work with us and collaborate with us on accepting a greater share of the risk. some are more ready and willing to do that than others. i have to say the united arab emirates is almost -- is our most credible and capable ally, in the gulf region. our first line of defense has been and will be our people. th
. speaker. the american people expect elected leaders in washington o revive our stagnant economy. we've offered a responsible plan to balance the budget with responsible reforms. the best plan senate democrats can come with continues to spend more money than we take in. their budget never balances. it includes $1.5 trillion in new taxes. mr. walberg: at least senate democrats have finally come around to offering a plan after spending the last four years on the sidelines. the president has yet to submit his budget to congress. already six weeks behind his legal deadline. budgets offer a picture of how government plans to steward taxpayers' money. the senate asked for higher taxes, to fund higher spending, to finance ever-growing government. my constituents are tired of the cavalier and unserious approach that has become all too common in washington. i'm pleased that the house republican majority continues to take its responsibility seriously and produce budgets which balance, getting us back on track to fiscal sanity and a healthy economy. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the ti
demagogue in the last election last fall, they keep all those savings, and their budget wouldn't balance without them. now, our budget dramatically cuts the deficit, makes sure that we're -- our deficits are not growing faster than the economy, down to 2.4% at the end of the window. we stabilize the debt below where the c.b.o. projects today. we stabilize 70% of g.d.p., and, yes, we also will balance our budget in the same year that the republican budget from ast year balanced. if this were just a race to balance the budget first, vote for the republican study group proposal. four years. but if your priority is jobs and economic growth, as it should be as part of a measured and plansed approach to reducing the deficit, then you need to support the democratic report. i yield -- i yield back the plns of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from wisconsin. mr. ryan: the gentleman from maryland is right, we do balance the budget. guilty. proud to be fwlt of that. we think balancing the budget is important. more to the point, in the revenues we're saying, we don't like the current

in the last election. asking nothing from the wealthiest americans and rich corporations that ship our jobs overseas while turning medicare into a voucher program and slashing investments that create real jobs. inequality is at its highest point since the great depression and yet this budget would make it worse. here's the top 1%. since 1979, look at how their income has gone up. 277.5%. this is the bottom 99%. you see a little bit of increase but you see where the money has gone. well, households making more than $3.3 million would get an average tax cut of $1.2 million. those who make less than $22,000 would get $40 and 1/3 of them would get no tax cut at all. meanwhile critical support programs for seniors and the poor would be cut, including drastic cuts to medicaid and the food stamp program. i urge my colleagues to oppose the ryan republican budget. it is pure march madness and not in a good way. the chair: the gentlelady yields back the balance of her time. the gentleman from wisconsin. mr. ryan: i yield myself a minute to -- the gentleman is correct in saying that the savings that a
